the drums of war. yesterday on abc cheney gave a harsh assessment of the obama administration's policy in the middle east. >> i think our friends no longer count on us, no longer trust us, nor adversaries fear us. 9/11, saudis, egyptians, many in that part of the world no longer have confidence in the united states. >> cheney also threw in his two cents on the republican party. >> i think it's very important we bring in a new generation of leadership. i think after the presidential election last year, we got whipped. there's a lot of work to be done, no question about it. >> not just the television spotlight, a new book "days of fire" closely examines the bush administration and cheney's relationship with the desire. in the book baker details the decision making behind war in iraq, guantanamo, expansion of the national security state and hurricane katrina. while cheney was no doubt a powerful force in the white house, he dispels the myth as dick cheney's puppet. he was unquestionably the most influential vice president in american history. but he subordinated himself to bush the way no
on the planet and the other part of the obama administration can't keep a website up. you almost want to swim responsibilities here. >> switch the two brains. >> could it effectively do the spying on angela merkel and someone else do the website. the obama administration would be in better shape. >> what are the implications of both. how angry are americans about either one. i don't want to go too far into the ac stuff. i think that is the man with two brains. but the idea of collecting metadata on americans. i think there is some people activists, seekers, writers, journalists that are legitimately upset about this. i'm not entirely sure the american public would begin to litigate this. >> i wouldn't go to aca. i don't think that's a good analogy. i do think good analogy to drones, deportation, all these policies that rhetorically, especially when he was running for office first time around he distanced himself from. then all of a sudden, inch by inch, moment by moment, we realized he's doubled down on some of the policies bush and cheney began. the american people, as for their anger, i don
of the obama administration. they are more into perception and feeling than they are into governing. i used the line about the wizard of oz. in oz it's more important what the perception is than the reality. and the secretary today obviously felt we should just believe her and the president that they want to happy these people and not pin her down on the reality. >> she said hold me accountable. she said, okay, i'm responsible. hold me accountable. how? they say she still has the confidence of the white house. he's not ready to fire her. no one is getting fired though we have wasted hundreds of millions of the taxpayers' money on a website that doesn't work while we are cancelling people's insurance. who will be held accountable? >> she'll be held accountable and the president will be held accountable. >> how? >> this website is a debacle. obama care. the president said if you like your health care plan you can keep it. >> we know that. respectfully, sir. we know that. the question is how will they be held accountable? she said, hold me accountable. how? can barack obama -- he's the only on
. >> this is not -- the french and the obama administration have no sympathy. the germans do. >> i agree. two issues. access, damage, negligence, trying to get a handle on it is one issue. this begs for a larger question. what you heard there in that interview is look, the president is going to dos in job. they are protecting the united states interns. the only thing that you don't have allies, you have interest. we are not going to stop surveilling. >> sounds like you don't think it should be an issue. you think this is a national security issue. >> yes. >> the of the president's base doesn't like this nsa business. >> a large part. >> he is sticking to it and said what is the president more upset about? the revelations or the tactics? revelations. he made no bones about it. >> he is right and they don't know what he has. that poses a big problem and i spent the last two weeks in germany and that's all anyone wanted to talk about. >> this is the number one story. >> it's a huge story and a huge problem, but they are going to get to the bottom of it. it's the uncertainty of knowing when things will come out
on the table tonight. late on what the obama administration knew about the nsa surveillance. also ahead, support for legalizing marijuana is at an all-time high so to speak. thank you [ laughter ] >> aisle be here all week. should schools send home letters telling parents their kids are overweight? fat letters a lot of people call them. we'll be talking about all that tonight. we begin with obama care under fire still yet again with the affordable care act already off to an unauspicious start. report obtained by cnn now shows the obama administration was warned that healthcare.gov was not ready to go live. it looks like one of the president's mantras if you like your health plan you can keep it may not be true for some 15 million americans. does the white house have a message problem or a lot more? joining me on the panele panel, start with chief national correspondent john king who is in washington. john, it is remarkable. this president time and time again said if you like the insurance you have, you can keep it. it will not change. it will not go away. now it seems like that is techn
are leaking to the press. remember the rumors the obama administration was thinking of booting vice president biden off the ticket for hillary clinton. >> that's crazy news chatter. >> joe, you heard from insiders about this. everybody poo-pooed you. >> said it early on. people were talking about it in '11. i heard from insiders. we talked about it on this show. everybody laughed. >> well, it turns out, when you say it, yeah. it turns out -- it turns out, oba obama's chief of staff at the time, was actively pushing the idea. his quote, i was vocal about looking into a bunch of things. this was one of them. you have to remember, at that point, the president was in awful shape. so, we were like holy christ, what do we do. fortunately for vice president biden, research suggested the move wasn't going to help the president's chances. i wonder why? >> hillary clinton's approval rating is down to 46% right now, i saw. hillary clinton -- >> this is interesting. >> i have great admiration for her. >> i do, too. i think she's going to run. >> benghazi is a serious, it's a lot more difficult for her to
responsible for healthcare.gov rollout became the first obama administration official to testify before congress. until today tavenner had largely avoided scrutiny from republicans who have instead preferred to train their fire on her boss kathleen sebelius. >> i understand you're not publicly releasing those numbers but i'm asking, do you have any idea of on a weekly basis how many people enrolled in how do you not know how many people have enrolled? >> we'll have those numbers available mid november. >> while the sniping over the website persists in committee, republican leadership is out with a new message. we're over the website. >> the problem with obama care isn't just the website, it's the whole law. >> the bottom line is the problems with obama care run deeper than just the website. >> the problems go well beyond a flopped website. >> it is clear obama care and flaws are much more than the website. the website is the tip of the iceberg. >> this week republicans smelled blood in president obama's claim no americans would be kicked off their existing plans. >> let me repeat this.
might think. also this morning, data the obama administration would rather not see in the bank. six. not 60 or 600 or 6,000. just six. that's the number of people who apparently successfully enrolled via healthcare.gov on the first day it went live. you know what they say. the road to hell is paved with good intentions. left over halloween imagery for you there. a deep dive to the effort to fix campaign cash laws that set washington on a course for dysfunction. good morning. it's friday, november 1st. i'm always thinking about another race ahead and another contest. at 1600. let's start with the first reads of the morning. we will talk weekly round up of all things. hillary clinton is not exactly hunkering down and keeping a low profile. in case you missed it, she has an aggressive fall schedule. as impressive as any potential presidential candidate. over the last ten days, a flurry of speeches and fund-raisers has taken her from buffalo new york to chicago to beverly hills. this afternoon, pennsylvania. she key notes the conference for women in philadelphia. it ends a week where we
keep rolling at the world and at the obama administration. i'm surprised there has not been more push back. it triggered a response by major nations. france, germ knowy and britain which has been our partner in a lot of surveillances saying it will work can europeans. we will come out with new rules that the nsa will have to live with. they will be more limited and the question will have to sort out that does that put the country at greater risk of the attack and does it take away any weapons important in defending the united states and allies as we go to greater protections of civil liberties. >> does anyone believe they would tap the phone of one of america's important allies. the cell phone of a world leader like angela merkel? does anybody believe the president would be kept in the dark? >> i believe there is such mass as david was saying. >> no, no. it's one thing if you -- >> i do not think the president was tapping. >> you don't think the president knew that angela merkel's cell phone -- >> i don't believe it. >> which is worse? >> that's terrible, yeah. >> if the president doe
revelations, just keep rolling at the world and at the obama administration. i'm surprised there's not more push back because it's triggered a response by major nations, france, germany, even britain that's been our partner said it will work with the europeans for new rules. we'll come out of this with new rules that the nsa has to live with. somewhat more limited collection of these signals. the question we'll have to sort out does that put the country at any greater risk of attacks. does it take away any weapons that were important in defending the united states and our allies for that matter as we go to greater protection of civil liberties. >> does anybody around this table believe the nsa would tap the phone of one of america's most important allies, the cell phone of a wld leader like angela merkel. does anybody believe the president would be kept in the dark? >> i believe there's such -- >> it's one thing if you tap the phones -- >> i don't think the president was tapping merkel's phone. >> you don't think that the president knew -- >> he may have gotten the data. i don't believe tha
president obama professes to know very little about what's going on in his administration. on sunday night the "wall street journal report"ed he did learn this summer the nsa was bugging phones of german chancellor angela merkel and other world leaders for nearly five years. followed by a few claims of hhs sebelius obama didn't know about problems of the health care website before the launch. the white house frequently has given a variation on this theme. the question, what did obama know and when did he know it? answer not much and about a minute ago. i mean not much and about a minute ago. and so now we're hearing that from other people that he did know for five years that angela merkel and allies have been -- i mean this is bad. >> the length of time that the program has been under operation or at least the lent of time it has been published with various world leaders. if he did not know, if you choose to believe the president of the united states and i believe the president of the united states, i want to believe the president of the united states. >> some reports suggest he signed off
incredible reporting. the obama administration has officially granted a six week extension for shop towers sign up for coverage next year. they have until march 31st to do so. course correcting roll out of the obama care may be the least of the white house's problems. for years president obama has denied the affordable care act would change health coverage for millions of americans. in fact it's been a key component of the president's sales pitch to the public. >> if you like your health care plan, you keep your health care plan. these folks need to stop scaring everybody. nobody is going to force you to leave your health care plan. i don't want government bureaucrats meddling in your health care. if your employer provides you health insurance nobody is talking about messing with that. if you're one of the 250 million americans who already have health insurance you will keep your health insurance. >> time and again president obama saying if you like your health care plan you will keep your health care plan but a new nbc news report finds just the opposite is true for many americans. lisa,

for the obama administration. willie, do you believe all spoold up mia was yesterday. everything was going fine, ten she showed up on set, whew. i'd like to apologize. >> i said something that actually made sense and joe just -- >> more impressions today? >> maybe. . maybe so, maybe a great thing. i don't know, i can't wait. >> all right. why don't we get to the news? i love that opening sound byte. that was fantastic. did you see the guy's face just sitting there going -- >> he couldn't get to -- >> you know what, he had in ug to say. >> feeter do i. >> yeah. >> we're going to do the news. this morning, president obama will be in boston -- >> oh, good, he's going to see the red sox. >> i know you invited him. >> sam, you want to go to the game? >> i would love to, i didn't realize i was invited until now, though. >> i just invited you. >> i will see you then. >> we bring sam? okay. are we bringing the plummer? okay. not for the red sox but to speak about the affordable care act. kathleen sebelius is expected for the blame contractors. >> she's profiling. call in caroline kennedy. >> saying the
neighborhood centers to get this health care. and what the obama administration doesn't want to discuss is that health care reform is largely helping poorer people. and i think that that is sort of the tension here, a lot of people are afraid what health care reform really is the next welfare program. >> so the -- the attitude that joy is describing behind reagan's message in 1980, as we saw through the clinton presidency, the dlc, the democratic party tried to respond and did respond in a lot of ways to co-opt a lot of reagan's message, how much of that, how much of what joy is describing is still prevalent in our -- how prevalent is it today? >> i think it is very prevalent. we have one party that says the government is bad. we have other candidates that say the government is bad and doesn't work very well, isn't efficient, joe manchin, folks like that. i'm not sure if obama care works at the end of the day that people's view of the government will change. i think you already had this notion where the sensitive report about this, 149 million people in the u.s. get some kind of governm
to be separated by the obama administration. >> he adds that he hopes this will force the administration to allow congress to interview survives of the ben benghazi attack. >>> this is a fox news alert. new details trickling out about fry dye's deadly shooting at los angeles international airport. the accused shooter paul ciancia is hospitalized and authorities say he has been unresponsive. federal prosecutors have filed murder charges against him. dominic is outside l.a.x. with more. dominic? >> hi there, shannon. the associated press reporting in the last few minutes quoting an unidentified law enforcement official saying that as he was arrested, the gunman, suspected it to be paul ciancia, the 23-year-old from new jersey said to them he acted alone and he had been dropped off at the airport by a friend. right now according to that law enforcement official he is sedated. we understand he is at the ronald reagan ucla medical center and he is -- as the fbi was saying he is unresponsive. he has an armed guard apparently standing next to him. and details of really what happened in the airport as he
. the obama administration has to get it right by 30th. but i think they will. but i think it's extremely slippery logic to think ha somehow the website didn't work for the first 30 days or first few weeks that obama doesn't doesn't work. if the website had worked perfectly, would the right be suddenly saying obama care makes sense? universal health care is a good idea. of course not. >> you think this makes it easy. the fight -- >> yeah. >> -- on whether this health care plan really has merit has just been made easy for the naysayers? >> low-hanging fruit. >> so let's talk about legacy, then. the president's legacy is defined in large part likely by this health care effort. and that's whether it's effective or not. so mercedes, is this white house, in your view, in trouble? >> yeah, absolutely. just this week he made the oversimplified statement to try and defend his oversimplified statement that if you like your health care, can you keep it. well, in fact, 10 million people are likely to lose their health care. the ones that they picked. and he called it quote, unquote, substandard plan

this administration , barack obama, the deficit has ctually been reduced by half during his five-year -- five years in office. in fact, i think as a percentage of g.d.p., the deficit has been reduced to a degree that has not been seen since the drawdown in the aftermath of world war ii. so we hear a lot about fiscal irresponsibility directed at the white house, notwithstanding the fact that this white house has presided over a near-historic level of deficit reduction. invest in the economy. second thing that's important is that we should get rid of some wasteful corporate loopholes that have outlived their usefulness. if we just close or change the -- or modified some of the benefits that oil and gas companies have received, they're making record profits, there's no reason for the loopholes and the benefits and the subsidies that exist right now. if we just were to address them, we could save the american people $25 billion over the next 10 years. if we were to change some of the loopholes that actually incentivize companies to move jobs overseas, we could save the american people $168 billion over

was reportedly livid about the surveillance and called president obama to register her displeasure. but the spying may have begun as far back as 2002, the early days of the bush administration, before merkel even became chancellor. and that timeline makes this clip from 2006 even creepier! i can't help but wonder if bush had gotten a tip from the nsa about how merkel mentioned on the phone she enjoyed the occasional back rub. here's the craziest part about this whole thing, it's not that we were tapping the german chancellor's phones, which is not necessarily that surprising, even though it involved an ally, it is that, apparently, president obama did not know we were doing it, according to a report from the "wall street journal" out today. the spying on merkel was part of the massive surveillance operation put in place by president george w. bush after the september 11th attacks, which members of the bush administration continue to defend to this day. >> we do have a fantastic intelligence capability worldwide against all kinds of potential issues and concerns. we are vulnerable,
